Anyone going to the opening Classic(s) of the European season?

I'm sure the Tour Down Under, Dubai, Qatar, Oman are all very nice but this is where the season really starts, in the Flanders heartland...

Apparently the start/finish of this years Het Nieuwsblad has been changed to accommodate a local market. Can anyone confirm this? Is a roadbook available?

    Re Nieuwsblad, that's correct. Every seventh year, when Easter falls early, the race has to give priority to Gent's Lent Market.

    2016 start at Jan Hoetplein: https://goo.gl/maps/51xryz1vgcA2

    2016 approx. finish on Emile Clauslaan: https://goo.gl/maps/p31dnvZR1EC2

    In addition the race will borrow three bergs, partly to compensate for the lack of the Molenberg, which is closed at the moment. Two come from the Ronde, namely the Eikenmolen and Ten Bosse. The Molenberg itself will be replaced by a genuinely 'new' berg, the Boembekeberg.

    That's going to mess up my planning this year...  :P
